Today at Formnext 2018, hall 3.1, booth J80, Dutch machines manufacturer Builder 3D Printers launched the Extreme 2000 PRO, the company’s “most advanced large scale 3D printer yet.” With its giant build volume of 700 x 700 x 1700 mm (XYZ), Builder believes the Extreme 2000 PRO is one of the biggest FDM 3D printers available, which makes it ideal for professional and industrial use.
From 3D printing prototypes, molds, tooling and more, the easy to use Builder Extreme 2000 PRO promises to print high quality industrial grade parts time after time.
User friendliness on the Extreme 2000 PRO
The Extreme 2000 PRO comes with a 7 inch touch screen. The touch screen is ergonomically placed at a level for comfortable use. With the touch screen you have full control over the Extreme 2000 PRO and the print object. You cannot only control the nozzle and bed temperature, but you can also control the lights, camera, upload files from your mobile device and watch instruction videos. To unlock the doors, just simply press the door logo on the screen and the doors will open automatically.
The Extreme 2000 PRO has been designed efficiently to be able to offer place to all its key features without sacrificing print volume. Despite its huge print volume, the Extreme 2000 PRO is optimal for all workspaces. The filament spools and control box are integrated in the closed housing and will open for easy access, when slightly pushing the panels.
The innovative and versatile direct drive extruder has been created for non-stop printing. The Dual-Feed extruder is able to print two-color objects, and can also be used as a mono extruder when inserting 2 of the same filament spools. The easy to swap nozzle can be replaced for a smaller/bigger nozzle diameter to influence print quality/time.
Print chamber control
Heating the print bed of the Extreme 2000 PRO takes approximately 10 minutes. The maximum temperature of the heated bed is 70°C – the optimal adhesion temperature for a variety of industrial plastic filaments.
A fully enclosed housing positively influences the print quality of the printed object and also reduces the sound of the machine by 40%. The transparent doors allow you to monitor the printing process at all times. For safety reasons the doors can only be opened when the print is paused. The Extreme 2000 PRO is air filter ready and a BOFA air filter can be optionally added to the system.
Formnext visitors can find the Builder Extreme 2000 PRO at Builder 3D Printer’s stand, hall 3.1, booth J80.
